Twitter hires new VP of Diversity and Inclusion

Twitter has hired Candi Castleberry Singleton as VP of diversity and inclusion, filling a spot that has been vacant since Jeffrey Siminoff left earlier this year.

In her past work, Castleberry Singleton has worked with a range of companies on inclusion efforts, including Walgreens, University Pittsburgh Medical Center, Motorola, and Sun Microsystems.
